The amount of times that I have tried to start this post is insane. It’s been 2 years since I came up with the idea for Honeystruck and my perfectionist self just needs to sit down and write out this first post and GET.IT.STARTED.
I have been blogging since the Xanga days. I’ve had a successful book review blog and started a lifestyle blog when those became popular. I could never keep up and only a select few of us that “grew up” with me in the blog world, stayed for the long run. Instagram came out and none of us really knew how to utilize this new platform and help it grow our blog. Remember when it was just pictures you randomly took and added the Lark filter to it? Easy. Now that I’m addicted to Instagram and know my way around it and have started building my own online community, I wanted to get back to my roots and start a blog so everything is in one place.
I’m not a writer, but I love to blog. I’ve always blogged for fun and that was the goal of this from the beginning. As a single mom who works a corporate job and then some, this is my own creative outlet. I want to write and post things that I enjoy and that I think others will enjoy too.
So what does this mean? There will be personal posts, contributing articles, categories such as Charlotte, Lifestyle, Travel, Pop Culture, Business, and more. I’m not niching down right now because I’m tired of that advice. This will be a place for US and a place for me to share my story.
Are you ready? I know I am.
